Just dropping a note to anyone searching for Google Map documentation, especially if they have problems. This is a great tutorial:
One note, I mentioned it to the creator too, the function in the tutorial assumes a page template used is in a sub-directory. If your map does not show up, change that bit of code…
This tutorial will replace the need for any Google Map Plugin…. Good luck!

This is great, but has anyone released a commercially available complete plugin for mapping and showing posts that use ACF for the location field?
It seems all over the web there is a scrambled egg of code snippets. And there are also “hundreds” of mapping tools, but none of those mapping tools want to use ACF fields and you need to be a coder to actually do anything with ACF map fields.
Is there anything out there you have seen?
I may or may not post new code as well – I handed the above working to my co-worker and she says she improved it a ton and did it much more simply, though I’m sure very similar. If I can wrangle that code (scrambled eggs) I’ll post it as well!
But yeah, I’m no pure developer myself either. With so many options to do this I hope a developer might find an easy go of it!
